Just received this email from BBTS:
No longer a surprise now is it?
Yeah this really isn't news at this point. This should be no different than the release of MP05 or the re-release of the TFC Megs.
lolz at ioioo's sig
Yeah, got to agree with you guys this is not unexpected but me feels that the orange tip will be easily removable.
Thats why I pre-ordered from fantofan
I thought about this when they announced this release. Now it's true.
Hopefully the cap comes off as easy as MP05's supposedly does
Got the same email right now
I am guessing TF source, Digital Toys and many others will be offering this unmoddified. I am only irritated because I just bought the Takara reissue like 2 months ago and could have save about 30 bucks.
It's okay, it was worth it to me.
Well, I got my TFC #6 Megs, so...
Lame. I refuse to think that toy guns without the plug cannot pass through the US custom. Is Joel from BBTS getting stalked by FBI or something? Good thing I got 2 Megatron reissues way before all this sillies started.
Ha! My modded MP-05 was sent from HLJ, over a month ago and it still hasn't arrived yet! Guess what that means? =P
their TFC 06 plug isnt removable. its a hard plug that's glued in, preventing you from ever using the barrel extention.
its pretty simple to get around this issue.
quit ordering megatron from BBTS. just get him from TFsource or one of the countless other retailers offering TFC 06 unmodified.
Yeah I already got un-modified 2 TFC # 6 That I got a year ago and but I want to have the Encore Meg aswell.
I guess that my loyal set of pliers will take care of the plug, just like the one from MP-05. we'll see...
He's going to be packed in gun mode, isn't he? I am worried about importing the toy, looks like the law can be tough here
hool up with someone reliable out of your country. have the item shipped to them, where they can transform it to robot mode, pack it safely, and send it to you. or maybe put it's box inside another box.
IOIIOOO's post may not have been newsworthy, (or even unexpected) but it was so worth it to me to see his awesome sig for the first time.
-murphbri (who thinks it's a shame that BBTS doesn't understand the difference between the letter of the law and the spirit of the law)
And just like MP-05, I won't be ordering my Encore Megatron from BBTS.
I think that it is so awesome that they're remaking these, as I was a late tf collector to bloom, and by now, those figures have sky rocketed in price. I have never played with or owned any of those figures being released, cept for soundwave which i just bought from the tru exclusive, but it just all falls into place for me...thanks optimus for being there for me...
